3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear but healthy gold, with a good two inches of white head. Light lacing. Mild hops in the aroma.
Hmmm, surprisingly tart - lemon or lemongrass is prominent. Light malt, nice floral or spicy hops, with some yeast in the aftertaste. Prominent carbonation.
Complex tastes in a smooth, clean, and refreshing lighter-bodied ale.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
14oz bottle; looked attractive. Pours a very watery light tan with minimum head. Aroma is like nothing I’ve smelled before-very earthy and foresty, also fruity. Very bitter and sweet, but not from alcohol, with a terribly bitter aftertaste. Somehow manages to become more palatable by the end of the bottle. Taste best described as mildly hoppy with a strong stench of spoiled fruit. Definitely not my style of beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I would call this a micro starter. Very Easy drinking golden ale. I get a hint of honey but not much else. Good for the summer slammer beer

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 I will admit, a Kolsch is not my style. A light, grassy, thin beer. Very little hops, not much more interesting than a macro lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. one finger lacy head that dissipates slowly. pale light golden appearance. Fruity, berry aroma. Quick, smooth finish. Too thin - more like a coors light without the after-taste (ok, probably a little harsh). Great beer, though, for a penalty beer in a drinking game . . . harsh enough to impose pain but not as brutal as college beers used to be.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma of malt and citrus. Pale gold color with frothy white head. Very light taste - citrus like, very thin, a bit of wet paper, a very little hop at the end. Very drinkable, but so is water. Having said that, it is head and shoulders above Budweiser. And eventually some bitter hop arises to be noticed. Maybe even a hint of apricot. There are some sleeper aspects.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky golden color with a white, whispy head. Malty taste with hints of citrus. Crisp and clean on the palate. Refreshing and decent.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Pours a pale clear straw color with large but diminshing lacy white head. Rather light body and carbonation. Lightly citrus aroma. The taste is lightly spicy, sort of like a watered-down Belgian style. Everything about this beer is barely there except for the crisp citrus finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent summer beer, but way too light, even for the style. Toasted cereal maltiness with some zesty citrus spice
